Burning question for you Miata drivers. What is up with the fad of removing/punching out the rear window when the top is up. I see this a lot



Better airflow? Aerodynamics? weight savings? Or is it just a 'Miata thing' that nobody else is supposed to understand?

I'm confused because the whole point of having the top up is to keep crap out of the interior of your car or things from getting inside while parked.

Airflow during the summer with shade. I did it a few times when mine was, uh, more streetable because the 20 year old AC was seriously lacking in NC heat. The difference between top down and top up with the back window down was massive.

I'm confused because the whole point of having the top up is to keep crap out of the interior of your car or things from getting inside while parked.
The rear window is on a zipper. Most agree that unzipping the window before dropping the top keeps your window looking nicer for longer. If you just want to run into a store, but want to keep stuff out of your car, you can flip the top up without the window and it keeps most stuff out.

Well, never lost control or traction. That was such ****ty experience to sacrifice my prized possession. I miss that car to the point I tear up.

It was for the best in some ways. I moved away from infinite traction to a '94 NA that I ran the crappiest tires I could (go through a set every 2 months) and learned a lot more from that car. It never flinched either. That is what I really miss about Miatas in general.

Having about 20 hours behind the wheel of a 400+whp FD3S showed me it was necessary to move onto something capable of a lot more power. The insurance on a STi or S2K was unreasonable.

Glad I still got into AWD even if it just supposed to be a daily. Next is mid engine or a GC8 project.

So, the car just magically flipped itself over onto its side?

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

20 hours behind the wheel of a 400+whp car? You havent set the first wheel on the tarmac by your own admission.

He never lost control, so obviously he meant to ruin the car. Maybe someone should tell his insurance company...

So that's how good Caitlin coil overs are? I see why they're the choice of people who don't go on racetracks but think they drive fast on the street.

Team Assumptions & Broad General'izers

It wouldn't matter if I told anyone here what happened.

This guy takes his Miata driving seriously. A helmet cam haha


Not because racercar but just as quick.


Those 20 hours in this car came on about 50 miles of secluded, unincorporated road. Where "street racers" drive enthusiastically.


You are looking up the wrong tree for someone to lynch.
